    Hi there :)

    Quick tip for those who want to build up a few quick backlinks through widget building;

    1. Head to Newgrounds.com or any popular flash portal, and grab a new, popular game.
    2. Upload the .swf to your own server (or anywhere you can find to host it)
    3. Pop over to widgetbox.com and throw the game's embed code into a widget, along with a few backlinks to yourself under the keywords you're targetting.
    4. List your new widget under Widgetbox's game section ( http://www.widgetbox.com/tag/games )
    Following this being published, you'll appear under newest games - you'll get webmasters who manually take your game and add them to their directory, along with certain folks (such as myself ;)) who use a scraper and add you to an arcade website.

    This will get you some easy PR1-3+ backlinks, along with with a couple of direct clicks to your site. Always a great way to promote a new website when you're short on cash.

    There are of course other faster, automated methods which I may share in the future ;)

    Hope this helps :)

    <edit> While I would consider this whitehat, some people I have spoken to would consider this to be a grey/blackhat technique. If any mods feel this is appropriate, please feel free to move to it's relevant section.</edit>

    Can you be a bit more detailed here?

    Also, it says something about making your game ad compatible. Do you do this?
